Pirouette over to L'Occitane for the Pivoine Flora Collection!

I'm a sucker for cute packaging and it doesn't get much cuter than the adorable ballerinas gracing the tops of the new Pivoine Flora collection!  Not only cute, the ballerinas are practical - the colours they are, are the colours you will find inside the compact! And while I love the environmentally friendly aspect of the cardboard packaging - I have ruined more than one previously by leaving it on the bathroom counter and accidentally water-logging it!
Healthy Glow Face Powder - 10g - $36 - a complexion-warming powder to enhance and highlight - don't be scared by the gold bar in the middle, it's just surface decoration and doesn't go all the way through!
Facecolour Cream Duo - 2 x 2g - $22 - in 3 shades: Beige Ballet, Rose Reverence, Arabesque Abricot. - enriched with softening Peony extract and delicately perfumed, they have a texture that easily glides on with fingertips - dual-sided, one side contains a matte blush and the other a pearlised colour to adjust intensity on cheeks or add highlight.
Lipstick - 3.5g - $20 - in 4 shades: Cuivre Royal, Rose Pique, Vaise Fuschia, Tourbillon Cerise - on the sheer side but with a lot of moisture, perfect for summer!
Lip Shine - 8ml - $20 - in 4 shades: Rose Ballerine, Brun Pirouette, Peche Farandole,Point Grenadine - an almost tint-like product that’s thicker than a tint but not quite a gloss, great shine and pigmentation!
Incredible Lip Shine - 10ml - $18 - goes on clear and than transforms into the perfect rose shade to suit you!
Duo Eyeshadow - 2 x 2g - $22 - in 4 shades: Envolee Lilas, Blanche Etoile, Corail Quadrille, Rose Tutu - this is a really fun product - you can use the two shadows separately or blend them together for a third, funky new colour!
Petals Eye Quartet - 4 x 1.5g - $30 - super soft colours with a lovely hint of sparkle!  I also like that the mirror is removable!

Available this month at L'Occitane Boutiques across Canada - go to or call 1-877-212-0238 to find one near you.

Have you used L'Occitane makeup before and what do you think of it?

  1. I haven't but this collection looks great!

  2. I just checked them out at the store today. They're pretty and apparently made with all natural ingredients. I thought the shadows weren't that great, though. Shimmery minus the pigment.

  3. This collection looks pretty feminine and cute. I agree with the cardboard's too easy to get it ruined...
